Got an email from Wi-Moto Nyoka, a NYC-based playwright who is creating a concert reading of her web-based comic series “Dusky Diana” at the Brick Theatre Comic Book Festival in June. She is looking for an NYC-based Asian American male actor/musician/spoken word artist for the role of the male protagonist and love interest for her production.

Full casting call after the jump!

Asian American NYC based actor. 25-35yrs, non-AEA, comfortable with spoken word performance, available now until June 14th. 

Dusky Projects playwright and librettist Wi-Moto Nyoka, will premiere the one act concert reading of Hero How To from The Last Days of Kartika . The concert reading is set to open on June 4th-14th ,2014, at the The Brick’s Comic Book Theater Festival, located at 579 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn,NY.

Hero How To, had its first workshop performance at Tanzhaus NRW (Germany). What started as merely a super hero alter ego expressed through music performance, and a stand alone motion comic, soon blossomed into an innovative blend of theater, Hip Hop, and illustration. A form of storytelling that glides through disciplines with ease and grace, The Last Days of Kartika is a web series whose purpose is to manifest as a live theatrical happening. An online graphic musical whose culmination is the staged motion comic, Hero How To.

A small stipend will be provided.
